The Elizabethan Puritan Movement

Patrick Collinson

Oxford University Press

The Elizabethan prophesyings were in the Zurich tradition, with some traces of the more popular variety. They grew partly out of official and semi-official projects for the improvement of the ignorant clergy, but more out of the spontaneous enterprise of the puritan preachers themselves. There was a tendency under a sympathetic bishop for exercises of the official variety to fall under puritan influence, and equally for puritan experiments to receive episcopal sanction, and so for the two institutions to merge into one.
